[podcast - 032] Projekt Gestalten Live -Tranzmitter Netlabel


Published March 9, 2011


Projekt Gestalten, Podcast
Projekt Gestalten is a project created by Diego Garcia - an audiovisual artist, electronic music producer and graphic designer from Sao Paulo, Brazil.

His first adventures as a musical producer began in 2003, making progressive house. Three years after, he released his first official remixes through American labels.

In 2009, Diego abandoned house in order to approach more experimental styles such as glitch/IDM, minimal techno, techno and ambient music. He began to sign his productions as Defective Monikerâ and, under this signature, he won, in 2010, a remix contest for âSamba de Velhoâ track, by DJ Ilan Kriger - a version of the famous âMas Que Nadaâ song.

On the following year, he spent some time in Berlin and, inspired by the Berliner experimentalism of its underground scene, he started Projekt Gestalten.

The name means âconstruction projectâ in loose translation from German. This refers to the many multimedia platforms used by Diego (audio, design, photography, video, etc) which, although different, are integral parts of a same constructive project. Through that perspective, Projekt Gestalten also makes an allusion to the gestalt psychology, which states, as its basic principle, that "the whole is greater than the sum of its parts" - a concept studied by Diego while he was still in the Design school.

In 2011, he released, by underground label Tranzmitter, his debut album entitled âAbsenceâ - with experimental pieces ranging from ambient and glitch to minimal techno. In 48 hours of release, the album was downloaded a thousand times already. Diego also collaborated with an original track for the compilation of the labelâs fifth anniversary.

Nowadays, Diego dedicates himself to his live act, where he does mash-ups and remixing on the fly of his songs combined with jazz, blues, techno, house, trip-hop and a multitude of other different styles that helped to shape his musical perception. He intents, very soon, to relocate to Berlin to learn the German language and initiate his Masters in Visual Arts.

Subject: Great Mix!
I really like your music, but this mix let your tracks shine in a different colour. It's not just like glueing all the tracks together. Instead this mix creates a nice flow with beautiful transitions between the tracks enriched with new samples and elements!
It's a must on my MP3-Player!
